Research Interest

Simon Tappin has an interest in all areas of small animal medicine but particularly enjoy the challenge of looking after our more critically ill patients. He has also been instrumental in developing the Interventional Radiology service at Dick White Referrals. Interventional Radiology allows minimally invasive techniques and employment of bio-materials to effectively and comfortably treat many conditions for which previously more invasive surgery would be needed. His current research interests are investigating the prevalence of the multi drug resistance gene within the UK and the implications this has on disease aetiology.
